Use threads. I believe using channels will lead nowhere. I assume this
is for sockets? You *could* use the Tcl socket(n) library, which has a
different programming model than Python sockets (which follow C
sockets closely). I'm not aware of anybody who has taken this route,
but I think it could work.
